Cole missing for Livingston

Livingston are without Darren Cole as they look to push further away from their bottom-placed visitors Alloa.

Cole has a knee injury and joins Craig Sives (back) and Danny Mullen (hamstring) on the sidelines, while Moses Druckell is also an injury doubt.

Manager Mark Burchill said: "It is difficult to predict how Alloa will approach this game. They may want to sit in after losing 5-0 to Dumbarton in midweek or they may want to show any perspective new manager how good a side they are on the ball.

"Whatever they do we have to get the better of them as we want December to be a positive month for the club."

Alloa will have assistant manager Paddy Connolly in charge following Danny Lennon's resignation earlier this week and he welcomes Jason Marr back to his squad after injury.

Robbie Crawford looks set to shake off a knock and play, however, Colin Hamilton and Michael Chopra are both struggling.

Connolly said: "It has been a disappointing few days with the manager leaving and then losing in the Scottish Cup.

"We will look to bounce back by taking the three points from Livingston as a win would be a terrific tonic for everyone at the club as well as keeping us close to the teams above us in the league."
